    His mommy’s got her little piggy on less milk now! 1, 2, 3 and off.
    She has wanted to wean me off for weeks now too, but it didn’t work. :haha:

    June is super nice, replies right away and accommodates special requests.
    Moers, You are one of the reasons I ordered the aprons, because I saw them on your pictures of your strapping young boys!
    Some things are a lot easier, now that I have just one buck. The herd couldn’t have gone foraging together with both bucks.

    Pipsqueak weighs 26 pounds at 9 weeks old.
    I looked in my record, his dad Jeffrey weighed 16 pounds at 10 weeks and May herself weighed 17 poinds at 12 weeks.
    A piggie indeed!

    Thanks! Yes, it is amazing. I was told Jeffrey was weaned at 6 weeks old. No wonder he was a little skinny! He caught up though, and is a little (big) piggy himself!

    :update:
    We had been waiting impatiently for the anti mating aprons. It had been more than 3 weeks since June shipped them. I thought they were lost in the mail. So today I decided to wean Pip completely. He was still screaming every time he saw 2-leggers. I had him down to one latte a day, plus right after milking. We were all tired of the tantrums. So this was going to be the first day without any milk. There was screaming, and I left to go to the post office... and there was the parcel!!!!
    I put the aprons on right away and let the 2 boys go with their moms. Coco, my wether, had been babysitting all this time. He and Willow were overjoyed to get back together. Then we all went for a long eating walk, with Jeffrey the buck in his construction worker apron.
    Pictures will hopefully load. Data is low.

    Question to @Moers kiko boars , do you leave the aprons on 24/7? Are they ok to sleep with them on?
    Pip and Coco will be their separate from the does at night.
    Thanks
